I enjoyed seeing the work of others, here, making the plague mask. And just so happens, DieselpunkRo is giving away a free template for a mini version.
I thought it would be a good chance to see how hard it would be to convert the template to a svg. It wasn’t too bad but, then again, it is just a one page template.
So here is my completed Plague Mask key fob, made with Proof grade medium natural leather.
Edit: I didn’t have the proper sized thread, so I had to double the thread over. So the stitching could look better.
Thanks for looking.
It just so happened to be the perfect size for my wife’s bunny. Now he will be protected…or at the very least he can transition over to Halloween.
I’m actually mid-process of converting DieselPunkRo’s full size plague mask to svg and prototyping, it hasn’t been too bad but even with some skills it takes a few hours. Here’s one prototype that seems to cheer people during this dark time.
Thank you for posting this. I have wanted to try some leather work for a while now, but always felt intimidated by it. I’ve had all the tools I needed, just wasn’t sure how to get started. I decided to give this a try and it worked out really well. His video was great - walked through every step. Thanks again. Couldn’t be more fitting for right now. I think this will be our 2020 christmas ornament.
Looks freaking awesome,
by chance can you show underside of mask?
Very cool!. I love the color.
Here is the underside. I had purchased a set of veg leather scraps from a FB laser and leather group and this green seemed like a good choice for this mask.
So I purchased DieselpunkRo’s latest Plague Mask design and converted the files. I cut it out of craft foam and glued it up Really Quick (so it has some flaws) just to determine scale.
